Many years back I was under a therapist that was very shocked at how poor my memory is, i I have no recollection of growing up (by this i mean day to day stuff, attending school etc,) I have some memory for certain bad things that happend to me, So unless someone made an inpact on me as a child I have no clue who they are, when other wanted to request friends on FB, I had to take a look at what yr they finnished school so I could figure out who they were, well i still didn't know who they were but at least i know why they know me. So when people say do you remember when we did this, or you did that? I have abserlutly no idea what they are talking about just smile as though I do, its is such a horrid thing, especially as I cannot tell my boys what they were like growing up, as i have no recollection.Its really difficult lissening to others such as my sibblings say well you used to be like this its embarrsing. i'm sorry this is long winded but its the only way I can explain things I understand that Fibro Fog affects the Cognitive function (as does dyslexia which i also have) but does anyone know if it can cause this type of memory loss? does anyone else get affected this way?
